Oh Hey There. I'm Still Alive.

Monday, November 10, 2014

So last week I took a mini hiatus from the blogging world - totally unintentionally.  I will attribute my absence to the fact that my throat felt as if I had swallowed a handful of razorblades.  Seriously awful mental picture.  Sorry.  But it was all I could do to stay awake beyond 8:30.  However, I finally got my act together and headed to the Minute Clinic last Thursday around 6:00 to get my throat mess checked out only to be told that they didn't take patients so close to closing time.
They closed at 8:00.


But Friday I did what any teacher dreads doing (sub plans = not cool) and took a half day.  The sweet practitioner kindly told me that I had an ear infection and a throat that looked "extremely raw."  And only after one day of Amoxycilin the razor blades had disappeared!

This is where I would insert the clapping hands emoji.

Therefore my weekend was quite uneventful.  I did attend a first birthday party for my friend's sweet girl who is just 11 days older than Lola.  You do understand what that means, right?
Lola will be 1 in 9 days.

This is where I would insert the crying face emoji.

Panic mode hasn't set in about her party yet, which I probably need to get buying the ridiculous amount of things that need to be bought.  Kurtis did try to dress Lola in her birthday tutu yesterday and I quickly stopped that one with a simple, "Oh hell no.  Not that birthday tutu."  We had spaghetti for dinner last night so can you please imagine what I would have done if the birthday tutu got ruined!?!?

I promise to be more alive this week on the blog.  I have two amazing posts planned this week you won't want to miss.  Trust me.

In the meantime, enjoy your Monday folks.  Just nine more school days for this teacher until a week off.

Seriously, can these two get any cuter?  Even with laser beam eyes...

How was your weekend?


  1. Yikes! Glad you're feeling better though. I was in Florida for the weekend, and got to do some Christmas Shopping in Downtown Disney, so really... I have nothing to complain about.

  2. Ugh! So hard being a sick Mom. Healthy thoughts coming your way!

  3. Sometimes a break from blogging, from about everything, is much needed and sometimes a cold is the only thing that slows us down enough to see that fact! I hope the rest of the cold season goes smoothly for you!

  4. Glad you are feeling better, and I can't wait to see the birthday party pictures!

  5. Ugh, so sorry you had the crud that's going around. I hope you're doing a lot better now!
